If you’re planning out a trip to the cayman islands for your next big caribbean holiday, you might be pleasantly surprised to hear that the islands have a huge variety of exciting and engaging activities designed just for kids!
Submarine rides such as those offered by Atlantis Submarine and glass bottom boat tours offered by the Cayman Glass Bottom Boat program are a great option for kids of all ages. The family friendly submarine tour allows kids to view all the spectacular sights of the ocean without having to get wet. A gentle trip over the reefs provides astounding scenery and a plethora of sights, from elegant sea plants to some of the most beautiful, exotic, and unusual sea creatures!
Stingray City and the Cayman Turtle Farm are two more outstanding options. Kids can learn about the creatures of the sea while seeing them up close, with limitless photo opportunities. There are options to swim with the younger sea turtles, or to pet a stingray! Kids can view predator tanks from the safety of thick glass, and even stare face to face with sharks, or get a good view of the Turtle Farm’s resident monster, Smiley, a 9 ft saltwater crocodile!
Paired with days of endless fun, sometimes a casual stroll through the park is just what you want. Camana Bay sets a beautiful setting for just such an outing, with its water features adorning its four landscaped courtyard parks. The parks have benches and fountains for children to play in, and are even home to the Observation Tower, one of the very tallest buildings on the island of Grand Cayman. Lifts are available to the top of the tower, where observers can get a splendid panoramic view of the surrounding island landscape.
Want to experience 360-degree views of Grand Cayman? Look no further! Camana Bay offers this from Grand Cayman’s only Observation Tower. Known to be one of the highest public spots on the island. A ‘must see’ attraction that will provide phenomenal photos for your trip. Cool down with your kids in the interactive fountains and spend your day shopping, dining and watching movies at the state-of-the-art Regal Camana Bay Cinema.
The Pirate Caves and the Pirate Ship make an excellent pair of stops for children activities. The pirate caves takes you through a self guided tour into the underground passageways that real pirates used to use to hide their treasures! Both the pirate cave gift shop and the cavern tunnels themselves are handicap accessible and a great opportunity for a family outing. The Pirate Ship can add to a thematic excursion, as the two hour cruise caters especially to children, with activities including a pirate trial, walking the plank, options for snorkeling, and even sword fighting!
During the summer months, Camana Bay’s Moonlight & Movies program, and the Ritz-Carlton’s Movies Under the Stars make it easy to kick back at night and enjoy an outdoor movie with the family. Both locations regularly show family friendly movies, and both are paired with restaurants so viewers have the opportunity to dine before or after the movie showing!
